3527. <bullet<ls-thn-eq> PRIVACY ACT REGULATIONS

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

Legal Authority: 5 USC 552a

CFR Citation: 45 CFR 613

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The National Science Foundation Act of 1950, section 14(i), 
was amended to mandate that information supplied to the Foundation or a 
contractor of the Foundation in survey forms, questionnaires, or 
similar instruments be used only for statistical or research purposes. 
Data collected from these surveys is maintained in three NSF Privacy 
Act systems of records, and used only for statistical analysis, not for 
any administrative determinations. The statutory change requiring that 
data from these systems be used only for statistical purposes meets the 
requirements of Privacy Act exemption (k)(4): ``required by statute to 
be amintained and used solely as statistical records.'' NSF intends to 
amend its Privacy Act regulations to apply exemption (k)(4) to these 
three systems of records.
